Grey District Council

Southern Ward

The Grey District Council provides local services and facilities, such as public transport, rubbish and recycling, libraries, parks, and recreation facilities. It also makes decisions about building and planning, local regulations, and infrastructure, such as water supply and sewerage. The council is made up of eight councillors and the mayor. Councillors are elected to represent wards (areas in the district). Two councillors will be elected from the Southern ward. This is a first past the post (FPP) election, so you vote by ticking the name of your preferred candidate on your ballot paper.

Why I'm standing

I believe that there is shortage of skilled, knowledgeable, and community focused people who are prepared to stand for council. I can do nothing or I can stand up and be counted.

My priorities
  1. Engage with government to limit policy that takes away people's livelihood and opportunities.
  2. Encourage people to engage with the council and be a part of the solution.
About me

I have a board background. I grew up on a farm, studied, owned businesses. Also I have travelled overseas, volunteered and been a trustee for community groups.
